Rundown (Scientology)

Rundown (Scientology)

In Scientology, a "Rundown" is the term created by L. Ron Hubbard to apply to a series of Scientology and/or Dianetics procedures designed to address a specific area in depth.


Cause Resurgence Rundown

Also known as the "running program," the CRRD involves running circles around a pole 12 hours a day, for several days, while taking mineral supplements. The program is administered to people believed to have become "PDH," or brainwashed against Scientology, to rid them of negative thoughts. [cite web|title=Running Program|work=Scientology Critical Information Directory|url=|accessdate=2008-02-06] [Brockman, Ina; Peter Reichelt (1999-02-25). "Missing in Happy Valley".]

Clear Certainty Rundown

A procedure in which the state of Clear is "validated and rehabilitated". Usually a short action of only a few hours. [] This Rundown was introduced in 1985.

Est Repair Rundown

A rundown designed for former members of Werner Erhard's organization, known as Erhard Seminars Training. The organization describes this rundown in the book "What is Scientology?" in this way:

"Some people formerly involved in the practices of a group called est (Erhard Seminars Training) have been found to need case repair. This rundown corrects any damage caused by est's practices, so that it does not hinder any spiritual progress in Dianetics and Scientology training." [Hubbard, "What is Scientology?", 1998 softcover edition, pg.680. ]

False Purpose Rundown (FPRD)

This Rundown was first introduced in 1984 [HCOB 5 June 1984 False Purpose Rundown] , although previously its principles were already in use in "Expanded Dianetics". This rundown is specifically designed to detect "evil purposes or evil intentions." The False Purpose Rundown, often referred as the FPRD, is available as a service in most Scientology organizations. It is also in use by the so-called Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF), where Sea Org staff may be sent as an opportunity to redeem themselves, although it is considered by some a means of punishment. The person is audited for sometimes over a year, until the person is considered "free of evil intentions". [ [ RPF - A Sociological Study] , by J. Gordon Melton]

Some critics within the organization believe that this rundown has been falsified by David Miscavige and others, containing too many contradictions to have been written by Hubbard. [ [ The False Purpose Rundown] [ More] ]

Introspection Rundown

This is a procedure that is intended to handle a psychotic break or complete mental breakdown. This rundown made worldwide headlines during the investigation of Lisa McPherson's death at the Fort Harrison Hotel.

Livingness Repair Rundown

Also known as "Life Repair". According to "What is Scientology?" (1978 edition), "This is a brand new Rundown to be used by the Missions of the Church of Scientology in the handling of new public. This Rundown isolates and addresses the major area the individual has run up against in life that is causing him difficulty, and handles it through a specially formulated program exactly tailored to the individual's need." ["What is Scientology?" (1978 hardcover edition)]

Primary Rundown

The Primary Rundown "consists of word clearing and Study Tech. It makes a student Super-Literate." Involves clearing small words like "of", "at" , "so", etc. ["What is Scientology?" (1978 hardcover edition)]

PTS Rundown

The PTS ("Potential Trouble Source") rundown is administered to Scientologists who have been designated PTS and must be assessed for Suppressive Person status. It is also for Scientologists (especially Sea Org members) who have fallen ill. It is a fundamental Scientology tenet that people with physical illnesses become PTS and "out-Ethics", meaning, bad for the organization. [ [ Ex-Scientologists Speak -- "Warrior"] ] :: "All sick persons are PTS." - Hubbard, HCOB 20 April 1972

:: "...all illness in greater or lesser degree and all foul-ups stem directly and only from a PTS condition." and "...getting rid of that condition requires three basic actions: A. Discover. B. Handle or disconnect." - Hubbard, HCOB 10 August 1973

Purification Rundown

The Purification Rundown is a detoxification program involving the use of saunas, vitamins, and consuming oils, far in excess of what mainstream medicine considers safe levels. [ [ Narconon Exposed: Is Narconon Safe?] ]

outh African Rundown

In Hubbard's words, "This rundown is for delivery to South Africans — those who reside in South Africa as well as those who have emigrated to other parts of the world. The South African Rundown has two parts: a. PTS handling; b. Help Processes." [ Hubbard Communications Office Bulletin (HCOB) of October 21, 1973, "The South African Rundown" ]

Hubbard found it necessary to specially develop this race-specific rundown - the only one of its kind in all of Scientology and Dianetics - because he felt "The South African native is probably the one impossible person to train in the entire world - he is probably impossible by any human standard." [ L. Ron Hubbard, PAB No. 119, 1 September 1957, as published in Level 0 PABS (c.1968, The American St. Hill Organization)]

unshine Rundown

Described as "a locational the person does on their own". [ [ ARS FA for New Readers] ]

uper Power Rundown

Described in the "Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary" as "a super fantastic, but confidential series of rundowns that can be done on anybody whether Dn Clear or not that puts the person into fantastic shape unleashing Super Power of a thetan. This means that puts Scientologists into a new realm of ability enabling them to create a new world." [ [ The Super Power(s) Webpage] ] The Super Power Building is currently under construction in Clearwater, Florida for the specific purpose of administering this rundown.

Vital Information Rundown

Apparently a collection of vital personal information as the name states, as it includes an "Allergy/asthma Rundown" as part of itself. [ [ Vital Information Rundown - Scientology Service Completions] ]

Wants Handled Rundown

A rundown in which the preclear assesses what he wants to get rid of in his life. According to the "Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary", "Handling of each thing the pc wants handled is dictated by what the "thing" (somatic, intention, terminal, condition, doingness) is." [ Hubbard Communications Office Bulletin (HCOB) of March 28, 1974, "Expanded Dianetics Developments Since the Original Lectures" ]
